16. Description


The peak of mountain of “Sheniku” reaches 2554 m and, being the highest mountain in Kelmend, the guesthouse takes its name from it. In front of it stands the “Kelmend Castle”, a natural monument that defended this land against the invaders over the years. To reach the “Maja e Sheniku” guesthouse from Tamara, you must follow the non-paved road for about 1 hour (by car), which introduces you to the life of this village, typical of our ancestors, and along the entire road you can hear the pleasant sound of the river Cem, which gives life to the trip.

In addition to the untouched nature, in this guesthouse you can taste boiled cheeses, dried meats, byrek with mountain herbs, potatoes from the area roasted with cream, fruit juices from the village of Nikc, etc., recipes that are preserved and passed on to the younger generations with a lot of passion. With the same passion, the family welcomes tourists with the characteristic hospitality of the highlanders.
